really have had a lot of change in those kinds of broad public perceptions. that's different than the question of what a person might say coming from an underlying bubbly cal world view or the christian faith. but i think there's been a lot of motion in our culture over the course of these last 17 years or so. >> suarez: during the time there's been a lot of motion, that has church basically -- or your branch of the church, stayed in the same place? >> i think so. i would argue that really the christian faith has always been somewhat out of tune with the cultural ethics of the time. if you go back to new testament times you have greco-roman culture that certainly didn't embody christian values in terms of human sexuality and christianity was countercultural and the old testament religion was countercull dhourl the canaanite context. so it isn't that big for us to feel out of step with our culture at some given time. >> suarez: reverend schuenemeyer the same question. did the united church of christ look at the same shifts in the culture and come from a different conclusion than pr

of that year which then changed the california constitution to eliminate that california supreme court decision. in the interim 18,000 same-sex couples got married in california. the first challenge was to whether or not proposition 8 was really a revision of the california constitution and had to go through the legislature, the california supreme court said, no, no, no, it's an amendment to the constitution, so challenge, a challenge to proposition 8 under the california constitutioning is not going to work pause -- constitution is not going to work because it's an amendment to the constitution. .. intervened in the case. now, at that point the attorney general mcgovern was still parties to the case. they were defendants in the case so that was a clear case or controversy. they were enforcing the law and the interveners, therefore, could piggyback on the standing of the actual parties. when the decision came down we had a 12 day trial, with evidence from all kinds of experts and plaintiffs and other individuals. the district judge found proposition eight unconstitutional on the grounds that we
